Hugh Grant and George Clooney are set to star in a big screen version of the cult 1970s television series The Persuaders as Lord Brett Sinclair and Danny Wilde, respectively.

The Hollywood hunks will join forces with actor Ben Stiller, who has gone behind the cameras to co-produce the movie.

Fellow co-producer Nick Hamson says, "We're very excited about the project finally coming together.

"It's been an idea we've been keen to pursue and we're so pleased that it is now in development. People of our generation grew up watching The Persuaders religiously."
